Athens was not ready to host the '96 Olympics, it would have been a debacle. We were barely ready for the '04 ones.

Having said that, the opening ceremony was incredible. It was beautiful, and I've never seen anything like it.


As for the tickets, we did very well. We sold more than Barcelona or Seoul, so considering the country only has 10 million people, and all the tourists were scared away by the mongering of the British, US, and Australian press....

The Athens Olympics were way better then the Sydney one. Just everything about it. The stadium, the lighting, the performaces, decor, costumes, music.

The lighting of the cauldron in Sydney was one of the most spectacular sights I have seen. It brought Goosebumps.

my favorite was Sydney but i bet the best is yet to come, maybe Germany 06, and of course the most impressive is going to be Beijing 08, i can't wait.
